Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit,
but with humility of mind
regard one another as more important than yourselves;
(Philippians 2:3 NASB)
It’s always easy (or easier) to deal with someone who is nice and kind in a very respectful and honoring way. Sometimes, even the simple idea of someone being in some kind of a leadership position, can be reason enough to be lowly in your approach towards that person.
